Life • Health • Property/Casualty

This is a guide to the law of insurance in Pennsylvania. It attempts to make that body of law more manageable by summarizing the statutes, regulations, and court opinions, and by bringing them together in an orderly way.

The statutes and regulations need reorganization to remedy duplication and dispersion. Court opinions can be found, to some extent, through the annotated statutes, but the search is hampered by the disarray in the statutes. In addition, holdings that do not construe any statute may be hidden in, or missing from, the annotations. This book summarizes assembles, and organizes those authorities to make them more accessible.

This is an overview of the law, rather than an exhaustive compilation of all statutes, regulations and opinions. It does not replace the primary sources, but rather serves as an introduction to them.

Specimens of forms are displayed in the Appendices to show the reader the documents that may be required in certain situations. They are for illustration, not for use. The Insurance Department forms should be obtained from the Department, to make certain that the forms are up-to-date and that Department procedures are followed. Other forms, such as releases and pleadings, should be drafted to suit the facts, procedural requirements and substantive law applying to each situation.
